Review of Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray by beautykrazy
I finally caved & bought this cult fave after years of trying cheaper brands in the hope that I didn't need to spend on the original. No such luck! I've been using the trial size available from larger dept. stores that stock Bumble & B. Pricey, but worth it. I really enjoy this and thank it for restoring my hair confidence, as this gives me the wave and volume I had as a teenager. I've always been a devotee of beachy waves, anything with "tousled", "textured", "surfy", "beachy" in the title has my attention. Whereas I've used and liked the results that other sprays gave (eg. I like Tigi Totally Beachin'), this showed me what I was missing. None of the other salt sprays give me hair that actually looks like I've been in the sea, with enhanced messy, deconstructed curls. This also works as a general volume & texture spray for non-surf styles. Of course, any salt spray will dry the hair to some extent. But this actaully dries my hair far, far less than other brands. I use it with Moroccan Oil (on damp hair), spraying by section then combing, tousling with fingers and adding a few finger twirls. Perfect, and the using the Morr. Oil first eliminates dryness for me. I do use a heavier conditoner after a day with this but that's fine, no longer term damage as with other brands. I don't find it leaves me with matted, gunked-up hair as some have done. It really is just what I've wanted from surf sprays so I'm impressed.The spray nozzle distributes fine mist superbly, getting the product easily through hair without having to use too much - a big plus for me.
